DirectDraw v's Direct Graphics(is DirectDraw dead)

Recommended Posts

I''ve found using Direct3D 8+ great for 2d graphics. For relatively few limitations, you get all sorts of neat crap like hardware alpha blending and rotation. It''s not slower than Directdraw either. If anything it''s faster.

Having said that, a lot of people still use DirectDraw and there''s a lot of resources around for it, so its far from dead.

Use whatever you''re more comfortable with.
